December 2, Juanita Bellavance, Daffodils!, From the 25 Days of Minis Portfolio, 2022, Acrylic on panel, 8 x 8 inches, Framed-9.5 x 9.5 inches


In the winter months of 2021, I spent a lot of time walking alongside a nearby river and making paintings about it.  I made 24 paintings for my 24-day online solo exhibit which is every April 1-24. After making all those paintings I started noticing the only colors I was using were blue, green, brown and variations of those colors. I started yearning for some other colors and thought it would be fun to have flowers in my paintings.  I started to realize there really aren’t many flowers around rivers.  I was very disappointed to learn that.  

Then, one day that Spring I suddenly discovered a patch of daffodils on the side of the parking lot!  It sparked such joy in me.  They stood out as a sweet puppy does when seen unexpectedly.  So refreshing and innocent.  The daffodils standing tall in their little patches of color creates a similar refreshing joy.
